Tables: Captions

Note: The HTML pages are out-of-date and will not be updated.

Table captions describe the information that appears in the table. Captions default to placement above the table, but they can be placed below the table with the addition of "ALIGN=BOTTOM" to the caption code. In order to add a caption to a table, place the caption code after the initial table code as in the examples below.
